Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – Claiming your furlough repayment, are you enrolled for PAYE Online?

Posted on 7 Apr 2020 - News

Coronavirus

To claim furlough repayments employers need to ensure that they are enrolled for PAYE Online.

Enrolment for the service is via the employers’ government gateway. Employers that are not enrolled should be aware that it can take up to 10 days to complete enrolment, pending receipt of an activation code. This process may take longer if demand is high.

If you are using Streets agents’ login, you will still need to register as an employer as the agents login, we believe, will not provide the access required.

How do you enrol for PAYE Online?

Enrolment depends on whether you have an online account for other taxes such as Corporation Tax or Self-Assessment.

If you already have an account

Log in to HMRC Online Services, then under ‘Services you can add’ select the option to enrol for ‘PAYE for Employers’ and enter your details.

If you have registered previously but no longer have the login details, you will have to look at ‘problems signing in’.
